Player tips


Birthright can be a very challenging game to play - there are 5 distinct human races, many of the races differ to the normal D&D socially and mechanically, games are often built around diplomacy rather than damage rolls, magic works differently, and the player may need to manage a realm, not just their own character.


This page is designed as an index sheet for hints for players thinking of playing a birthright game.


A few obvious areas where tips could be helpful are laid out below, to add a tip please add a link below to direct people to your hint page.


Please add a Brownish banner to your page when you create it and, if need be, a Fanfic or Observation banner. The category for player tips is 'Tips'
